Democrat Governors Association led by NJ Governor Murphy Receives Donation from Planned Parenthood Abortion Business after receiving $20M+ in NJ state budget
August 7, 2020– Today’s NJ Advance Media reports that Governor Murphy helped raise $18.6 million as Chairman of the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) over the last six months. The article also states that Planned Parenthood donated $100,000 to the DGA. Given the fact that Murphy has allocated an unprecedented $23+ million in taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood in FY 2020 and he is the current Chair of the DGA, the IRS and DOJ should investigate whether taxpayer dollars provided by Murphy and the Democrat-controlled legislature are being funneled through Planned Parenthood to give to Murphy’s DGA.
On June 30, NJ Governor Phil Murphy Signed a Supplemental Appropriation Bill (A3/S20) which allocated $3.814 Million for Planned Parenthood. Governor Murphy and the Democrat-controlled Legislature previously allocated $20 Million this year to the abortion lobbying group and Governor Murphy planned to allocate another $20 million in the FY 2021 budget to the abortion business. It should be noted that these taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood are allocated without voter approval. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the nation. They are also a private, non-profit, political organization that financially supports the Governor and many members of the current party in power at election time.
Now, with this new revelation, it appears that there may also be a quid pro quo arrangement with Planned Parenthood to funnel some of the taxpayer money back to Murphy’s DGA which should, at the very least, warrant an investigation by federal and state authorities.
